Asian Rhinoplasty Procedure Los Angeles
Dr. Kahng performs all of his outpatient procedures at our AAAASF-certified surgery center in the office with a board-certified anesthesiologist. Asian rhinoplasty is performed under general or intravenous anesthesia for safety purposes. The procedure may be open or closed depending on the extent and nature of restructuring required, but the majority of these procedures are done as an open rhinoplasty for Asian patients.
- In a closed procedure, all incisions are made inside the nose.
- In an open procedure, an incision is made across the columella (the narrow strip of tissue separating the nostrils) connecting the incisions inside the nose. If an open procedure is used, Dr. Kahng will place the incision line for minimum visibility.
Grafting may be needed to augment and lengthen the bridge of the nose. Dr. Kahng may use cartilage or bone taken from your own body, or he may use a synthetic implant. The tip of the nose may be sculpted to add projection and definition, and to make the nostrils appear less prominent.
